There are undoubtedly a lot of benefits to working in the library, and one of the biggest is easy access to whatever I want to read. I get to see when materials are returned before they even make it back to the shelf, I can easily track my place on reserves lists, and I am learning the best time of day to put something on hold if I want a copy from a certain other branch in the system.
Monday night I brought home a variety of media from the library, and I am so excited that I had to share it with y’all!
As mentioned in my last post, since I finally finished reading Cloud Atlas I am now taking part in a reading challenge called Jane Austen July. I am not tackling the entire multi-part challenge, or even participating in either of the two read-alongs, but I am participating nonetheless. My personal challenge is to read Northanger Abbey in approximately two weeks. As a super goal, I also checked out the graphic novel adaptation. I will read it after finishing the original, if I have time.
I also checked out two AV materials. The first is a movie I have had on hold for months called The Bookshop. I honestly know very little about this movie, but the title and premise caught my attention one day while I was perusing a list of my library’s newest DVDs. The other is an audiobook. I am just starting to really appreciate audiobooks; I recently finished listening to Karen Chen’s biography Finding the Edge: My Life on the Ice on my drive to and from work. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to look for another biography to listen to while I drive! I settled on House of Dreams: The Life of L. M. Montgomery. I love this audiobook format; it’s a small player containing the entire book. You just plug in headphones or an aux cord, and listen! So much less hassle than changing out CDs, and no data required like with apps.
That’s all for today! Have you read any of these books or watched The Bookshop? I can’t wait to dig into everything!
Until the next chapter,
